About Me

Hello! I'm Neil. I'm a 31 year old born and bred Aberdonian.

I have been playing guitar since I was 12 years old and can provide live acoustic guitar and vocals at your event, whether that be a pub, club, birthday or engagement party, a private function or your wedding. 

With six years experience of playing live gigs in a 4-piece cover band, I have the knowledge and ability to get the party going with classic tunes as well as renditions of today's hits.

My repertoire includes songs from every generation from The Beatles to Ed Sheeran and Van Morrison to George Ezra. So there is sure to be something for everyone within set list! Be sure to take a look at my 'Song List' below to see all the songs within my repertoire. 

If you have a specific song or songs that you would like played at your event that are not on my list below, that's no problem! With enough notice, I can pretty much learn any song! Just let me know!

To get an idea of the sound I provide, please make sure to take a look at the 'Music' section of the website and check out some songs I have recorded!

    Q.) Do you travel the entire UK? 

    A.) Although my ‘local’ area is North-East of Scotland, I’m more than happy to travel anywhere in the UK as long as it is convenient. Travel expenses will be additional to the quote provided at 0.45p per mile.


    Q.) Can we choose what songs you play?

    A.) You can have complete freedom to tailor the songs in my set-lists to suit you. However, I’ve found the best way to perform is to follow my set-lists loosely and adjust my performance to the atmosphere of your event.


    Q.) If I don't see a song in your 'Song List' that I would like played at my event, can you learn it? 

    A.) Absolutely! Given enough notice before your event (preferably > 4 weeks), I can pretty much learn anything! Just ask during our initial consultation or any time leading up to your event, if something comes to mind later on.
